Want to Write About Your Cancer Experience?

One of the great things about being an author is all the emails I get from other aspiring writings who want to learn more about how to get published. They want to know about the craft of writing, the process of becoming an author, and how to succeed in the literary marketplace. When I began writing my book Everything Changes, I knew little about this field. Over the years, I schooled myself through trial and error, conducting tons of research about writing and publishing, and connecting with professionals in the field.

I’d like to pass along some of my knowledge to other writers who are interested in the subject of living young with cancer. I’m starting a new project called ‘Intern with An Author’ and I’m seeking my first set of interns now.

Interns will write blog posts, receive editorial feedback, and learn some of the ropes of the writing, publishing, and PR industry. I’m particularly interested in working with writers who have dealt with parenting and cancer, young adult caregiving, and thyroid cancer. But there’s room for other writers as well, even if you don’t fit into one of these categories.

For detailed information about the project, shoot me an email: kairolr at gmail dot com. Can’t wait to hear from you!
